HC Deb 10 May 2004 vol 421 c75W
Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether she has initiated a review of the security of the sea transport of Mox plutonium fuels in response to the heightened international threat from terrorism. [171652]

Mr. Timms

Any such future shipment will be carried out in accordance with the Nuclear Industries Security Regulations 2003, which are administered and enforced by The Office for Civil Nuclear Security (OCNS). OCNS will not allow a shipment to proceed until all necessary security measures, commensurate with the threat pertaining at the time, are in place. It is Government policy not to disclose details of these security arrangements.
